  • The Nehru museum has nothing great on display. It is an old building where Nehru stayed when he was the Prime Minister. His living room, study and bed rooms are kept as he had used them. There are a f...  more »

  • Well maintained place. They run a special show on how stars are formed, kids will enjoy it thoroughly, very good quality. The museum is also well kept. Good place to learn about the events of history that shaped our present. Last but not the least, its greenery , lot of varieties of trees and a patch of roses( this place would be incomplete without them) . the garden care takers do a great job. Must visit.
  • It was pathetic as we reached after calling and checking with planetarium sharp at 9 and waited till 9:45 but operating staff didn't come and we had to come back without seeing the planetarium . It is a request to higher authorities if junior staff can't handle and they are so dissatisfied please throw them out.i got the reply that we were 26 in staff now we are only 9 so we can't handle everything. But is it a visitor problem. Please edit time on your page and write as per availability of staff instead of 9 to 5. I even have pictures but don't know where to post.
  • Shows: 11:30 English 13:30 Hindi 15:00 English 16:00 Hindi Monday closed. Ultimate experience. I have visited it many times, and feel like going again. No ticket/fare for Nehru's residential home (now a museum). Price of Planetarium show is ₹30 to ₹50 depending on language. It is suggested to reach in time, around 15 min before show. Usually it is not crowded, however it may be a housefull in case it has been booked for a school trip (which is rare). Lovely place to visit with family / friend-groups / kids / alone.
  • The quality of the show was ok and the projector was biased towards a side. Take the seats opposite to the enterance to get the best view. The place has space capsule in whcih captian rakesh sharma returned from space.
  • Nehru Planetarium is the name given to 5planetariums in India,named after India's firstPrime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru. These are located in Mumbai, New Delhi, Pune andBangalore, plus there is a Jawahar Planetarium in Allahabad. Nehru Planetarium in Pune was the first one in Asia, established in 1954. The Nehru Planetarium in New Delhi is situated on the grounds of Teen Murti Bhavan, officially known as 'Nehru Memorial Museum and Library', earlier the official residence of India's first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru and now a museum in his memory. In 1964, the Jawaharlal Nehru Memorial Fund was set up to promote his ideas and it undertook to build the Nehru Planetarium with its aim being the promotion of astronomy education. This planetarium, like its namesake in Mumbai, was also inaugurated by Smt. Indira Gandhi on 6 February 1984. One of the major attractions of this place is the Soyuz T-10which carried India’s first cosmonaut Rakesh Sharma to space, along with his space suit and mission journal.
